MultiVu Video Feed: The Children's Museum of Indianapolis Opens
The Power of Children: Making a Difference Exhibit The Power of Children: Making a Difference, the newest permanent exhibit at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, will open to the public on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2007, sharing the extraordinary stories of Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges and Ryan White - three children whose stories teach us about overcoming obstacles to make a difference in the world. In this powerful 12,000-square-foot exhibit, museum visitors will be able to imagine the brutal realities these children experienced. Visitors will learn about Anne Frank and reflect upon what it must have been like to hide for two years from Nazi soldiers during World War II. Visitors can visualize being 6-year-old Ruby Bridges, who was surrounded by Federal Marshals as she walked through an angry mob to integrate a new school. Or, visitors can imagine being a teenager named Ryan White and contracting a disease which was so new that many people weren't even aware of what it was and how it was spread, so they were afraid to be near him. As visitors enter the exhibit, they will walk through a 30-foot tall "Tree of Promise" where their journey begins. Recreated, historically accurate environments reflect a special place where each child spent time, including the Secret Annex where Anne Frank spent two years in hiding from Nazi soldiers; the first-grade classroom in which Ruby Bridges spent an entire school year with only her teacher, and eventual friend, Mrs. Henry; and Ryan White's bedroom, filled with the items from his friends and the celebrities who took on Ryan's cause. , all donated by his mother Jeanne White-Ginder. First-person interpreters, live theater and real artifacts will make it possible to become fully immersed in their lives.
